and efficient and effective government. the budget will help promote a path to energy security by increasing opportunities to expand production of america's abundant energy resources and this budget will stop the unfair use of funding from hard- working americans. as a job creator and a cpa, i have seen firsthand how domestic american energy production can be a valuable component in creating jobs and fixing our nation's balance. the u.s. has combined recoverable and natural gas, oil, and coal and that is the largest in the earth, larger than russia, saudi arabia, or china. today, the united states is known as the saudi arabia of natural gas. the chart on the screen, if we can bring it up, illustrates how we can bring revenues by hundreds of billions of dollars by not enacting punitive taxes and by expanding exploration for energy on federal lands and oceans. the loss potential is also $200 billion. you could say there is a trillion dollar gap between the two numbers. this administration wastefully invests in corporate welfare programs like solyndra. solynda has several brothers and sisters.
.4%. the energy and work force committee had a hearing on it today. i am hopeful they will come forward with legislation that will allow it to return to controlled by its critics and their parents. -- by studtents and their parents. i yield back. >> thank you. i appreciate some of the earlier comments. as we go through this debate, i want to make one thing clear -- the number one threat to young america is this president's terrible economy. as we go court, we need to remember there is one fact we cannot escape -- as we go forward, we need to remember there is one fact the cannot escape -- over half of recent college graduates are unemployed or underemployed as a result of those policies. another great threat to the young people in this country is the national debt we are piling on them every year. does pass the bill out of this chamber, most voted for it -- we just passed a bill out of this chamber, most voted for it. as others have said, we need to get politicians out of the business of setting interest rates. some laughed when it was said earlier but history shows that when the market
point that if you expend more energy than you bring in, you die, whether you are a business, person, or country. the person who ignores that is against science. in the long run, a country that spends more than it raises cannot continue. it is a threat to this country. it is a threat to our economy. common sense confirms it. any belief in science tells me to believe that there is no bigger problem. [bell] >> let me quote the cheney who said ronald reagan taught us deficits do not matter. dick cheney was wrong. he is wrong then and he is wrong now. deficits matter. anyone who supported the bush has no business talking about debt. [booing] i helped bill clinton balanced the budget and built a surplus because we had good economic times. good economic times should pay down the deficit as clinton did but to reagan and bush did not. in bad times you have to stimulate and the airtime as president obama is doing. it is like listening to lectures on hygiene from type 40 -- typhoid mary. is more important to america's pursuit of happiness? which is more dangerous to america's pursuit of happin
between having a good education and getting a job. secondly, we need a national energy policy to ensure that we have clean and inexpensive energy across the long-term. if you look at the history of successful economies, the two most important numbers are the cost of money and the cost of energy. third, we have to reform our immigration system and, fourth, we have to invest in our infrastructure. to do these things requires investments. and we will fundamentally not be able to make these investments unless we, as i said, reform our entitlement programs and raise revenues. we're confronted with two choices in our budgets. and these are insufficient choices. the american people deserve better. on one hand we have a choice where we don't recognize the reality of where the entitlement programs are going. and then the other choice is we slash and cut the critical investments we need to make to have a future. we can do better. each party likes to take the high ground on a balanced approach. but what does that really mean? to me a balanced approach means several things. first, we need additiona
states. it is one terrific country. there is enormous energy in this country, where people want to get a job and go to work and businesses want to grow and hire people. all of that is waiting for congress to get its act together, to get this sequestration out of the way, austerity budget, 750,000 jobs to be lost. get that out of the way. look at a balanced proposal and end tax loopholes, make some cuts, make wise, thoughtful cuts. it can be done and should be done. along the way, we can grow the economy. we can once again make it in america. because when we make things in america, when we use our tax money to buy american-made equipment and supplies, we are creating jobs and putting people back to work. george washington said it. alexander hamilton said we ought to do it. and we the democrats said we ought to do this and ought to buy american. mr. rahall, the ranking member of the transportation and infrastructure committee made it clear as a part of the new transportation bill, there's going to be a major make it in america component so we are buying american-made goods once again and
journal ," we talk with republican representative bill cassity, a member of the energy and progress committee about the health care law and jobs. representative when more is a member of the house budget committee. she will discuss the budget proposed by both parties. the national review senior editor will be here to look at what's america's republicans. "washington journal" is live on c-span everyday at 7:00 a.m. eastern. >> when it comes to the secretary of state and the people around her, what i found striking is her ability to stay focused. at all times as much as possible on what is happening. she does not get distracted by the details if they are not important. she has an ability to stay focused on the big picture. how is what is happening in afghanistan impacting what they are doing in the middle east? how was that impacting what they are trying to do in asia? she had a sense of the strategy. she is surrounded by people helping her. she has staff to allow her -- i talk about that. that allows her to focus on what matters. she does not have to worry about lunch. it was just arr
after it conceded that it had helped iran conduct energy exports the acquisition of billions of dollars of gold. what is your assessment of what would happen to iran's fiscal and economic situation if these nine countries were not exempt from the u.s. sanctioned policy? >> what i can tell you is that the overall iranian oil that is being exported is down considerably. there were workarounds within the exceptions made for those who reduced over time. that is a constant evaluation and consideration. but the actual amount of iranian oil being exported is down. it is probably -- i probably reserve on the exact quantity for close session. >> i suggest that there needs to be much more transparency in order for us to make a judgment on whether or not doing such sweeping exemptions is wise policy. mr. brennan, i want to quickly touch on cyber security since you and i have worked extremely closely on that issue last year when senator lieberman and i repeatedly tried to get our comprehensive bill through. i had real reservations about the president issuing an executive order. i think it sends the
like education, the ability to attend college, research and development and clean energy, these are the keys to economic growth and opportunity. do not hand the keys to the republicans in congress because they will throw them out. experts predict this budget will result in 2 million fewer american jobs next year alone. that is on top of the 750,000 jobs lost due american families and businesses are feeling the headwinds in this economic recovery. unemployment remains acceptable he high. -- unacceptably high. here are a few examples. this republican budget slashes ability of students to attend college. it eliminates pell grants for students and provides a harsh squeeze for millions more. the key to a good job and opportunity is that college degree. but republicans turned a blind eye to the fact that college costs continues to escalate. they will say hell grants -- pe ll much harder to come by in america. research strings under the ru republican project. this includes alzheimer's, cancer, and aides. we rely on those dollars for jobs at the ke diversity and research and busi
energy stores that we have here so we can be energy independent. we have vast amounts of energy reserves we need to tap so we can put people to work, bring down gas prices, stretch paychecks further. we've got to control our spending appetite. we've got to reform programs like medicare so they're solvent. we've got to reform our safety net so it works to get people on their feet. that's what this budget does. in a nutshell, instead of spending $46 trillion over the next 10 years, as we're currently poised to spend, we spend $41 trillion. instead of growing spending 5% a year we grow at 3.4% a year. with all the predictions of doom and gloom and how evil and terrible and horrible or budget is, it increases spending every year by 3.4% a year instead of 5% a year. the difference is we balance the budget. the difference is we let families keep more of their own take-home pay. the difference is we make sure our kids inherit a debt-free future. the difference is we do what's necessary to create a healthy economy, more take-home pay, faster economic growth and better jobs. that's why we're here
